Elle has also had one of her two chest tubes removed from her side. These tubes are draining the fluid that had built up in her chest from the cancer as well as from the initial surgery to place the tubes in. And the epidural catheter, placed in originally to help manage the pain of two tubes in her side, came out this morning.
She is eating more now (scrambled eggs this morning with some Cheerios) and yesterday she took a walk down the hall.
Taken all together, she is getting closer to being able to come home. And then we can start the real work.
